Tuttosport: Mandzukic desperate to return, take the limelight and prove Milan right

By Oliver Fisher -

Mario Manduzkic is determined to return from injury and show the AC Milan management and coaching staff that they were right to bet on him, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Mandzukic is continuing his personalised work in the hope of being able to return soon to the squad and to the disposal of head coach Stefano Pioli.

So far, the Croatian striker’s journey in the Rossoneri has been tainted by a lack of playing time and to date the main investment of the January market in terms of potential impact has not been a gamble that has paid off, but there is still the final rush to take the limelight and show that Milan have done well to bet on him.

Mandzukic has racked up 158 minutes thus far across Serie A and the Europa League and has started just one game – the away leg against Red Star in the Europa League Round of 32 in which he sustained the injury.
